BYU Offers Scholarships to Top CCSF Players

BYU has offered scholarships to two of the best City College of San Francisco players, according to CCSF assistant coach, <b>Dan Hayes</b>.

"BYU has offered Antwon Guidry, a 6-0, 190-pound all purpose athlete with incredible speed that plays wide receiver, cornerback and kick returner. He's a track star in a football player's body with football toughness," Hayes told

"Antwon is without a doubt our best overall athlete on the team. Deqawn Mobley, our other wide receiver, got a lot of the attention and committed to Texas A&M, but Antwon is the best athlete on the team," Hayes added. "He plays both ways at wide receiver and cornerback much of the time. Plus, he was our kick returner specialist. He did more for the team than any single player."

Hayes noted that "Antwon's interception at the end of the championship game "iced the win against Grossmont JC for the title." Guidry's only offer so far is BYU because of questions about his eligibility (whether he will graduate in time), but Hayes says he is on track to graduate by May. Antwon is not LDS.

The coach added the Cougars have also offered offensive tackle Cornelius Thomas, a 6-6, 310-pound half-Samoan/half-black standout. Hayes said he is very athletic for his size and is a great pass blocker.

CCSF plays a similar "spread offense" like BYU with a one tailback, four receiver set on most plays. Thomas currently has offers from North Carolina State, Oregon State, Utah and BYU.

Both Guidry and Thomas have scheduled their official visits to BYU on Jan. 16.

When told that BYU today received a Letter of Intent (LOI) today from 6-4, 240-pound, middle linebacker Justin Luettgerodt from Foothill JC in California, coach Hayes immediate reaction was, "Oh man, BYU got a great one in Luettgerodt! He is, by far, the top linebacker in the league and is one of the Top 5 Division I players from our league this year. Justin is a terror on the field. He's a vicious, hard hitter with great lateral speed."

BYU assistant Steve Kaufusi is coordinating the recruiting efforts with the CCSF players.
